Support SF's Gubbio Project and see an amazing play!

Inspired by Francis of Assisi's solidarity with and love for the poor and outcast, The Gubbio Project provides daytime shelter, food, clothing and other necessities in SF's Tenderloin District. I've known them since my long-ago counseling work in community clinics.
This year, the theatre company I direct, Jump! Theatre (www.jumptheatre.org) is partnering with several other non profits to present the world premiere of the play Hunter's Point by Elizabeth Gjelten. ALL ticket proceeds go directly to the Gubbio Project - the costs of the production are being funded by the community agencies and grantmaking organizations sponsoring the premiere.
I've known the playwright Liz for many years , saw an early version of Hunter's Point a couple of years ago and said, we HAVE to do this play with Jump! That journey has evolved into a true community partnership with several agencies and individual donors coming forth to insure that community residents in the Tenderloin and other low-income neighborhoods are able to attend this stunning production.
Not to mention the acting , staging and original music is nothing short of incredible....

On the toxic edge of San Francisco, a homeless singer seeks refuge from psych wards and social workers as her errant sister closes in. Ruthie, an extreme travel writer, hires a beat-boxing street musician and bike thief named Hunter to find her sister Eva, while avoiding love and responsibility in her own life. A play with music and bicycles about fierce outsiders, the complicated love of sisters, and the meaning of home.

**Funded by Walter and Elise Haas Fund, Zellerbach Family Foundation, Stanley S. Langendorf Foundation, Puffin Foundation, Theatre Bay Area CA$H grant program, and the University of San Francisco; with participation of North of Market - Tenderloin Community Benefit District.


Thanks all.
